Hello all. I am a 3rd year old newbie in the haunted yard "business" I have been decorating for only about 3 years now, since I bought my first house. Its been getting bigger and the props more elaborate every year. I am Canadian and am proud to celebrate Halloween here.

This year I am planning on a "haunted walk" Down my driveway, through my back yard and out the side yard for candy. I am hoping to accept donations for the food bank here too.

I have started my props for this year today. A witches face for a stand up witch that stirs a cauldron. I also plan to board up my windows with foam and create a "box" that seems like something is stuck inside. I have a few "scareactors" lined up and raring to go.

In my spare time (what spare time) I work full time, I am a Girlguide and Ranger leader and go to school part time (2 nights per week) to complete my Social Service Worker diploma - wow, written down, thats a lot. But I like being busy. No kids yet....


Looking forward to Haunting will all soon~!

Hey Hellrazor. Welcome to the forum. I don't have a flashy saying like DR. Morbius, so the best I can do is wish you good journey. Watch out for the pot holes and don't take any wooden nickels.

HEEEYYYY none of that now. Canada celebrates all the holidays - not as elaborate as some (most) American holidays but we try. And as far as the "snow" idea. Its great where I live now (Southern Ontario) but when I lived up North (Sault Ste. Marie - you have one of those in Michigan), we used to have to make our Halloween costumes fit over our snow suits. But hey, we still went out (actually I think I was 19 before I quit - had to take my friends nephew out you know).

So, yes we do celebrate in Canada! I wont make fun of Americans if you dont make fun of Canadians... Fair? :D LOL

Its a beautiful place to live - but I must admit - hard to find inexpensive good Halloween items - Walmart doesnt even go all out like it used to because its not as celebrated here.
This fall, my mom and I are planning on a trip to Pennsilvania around early to mid October so I can do some Halloween shopping.

If you choose to move to Canada Mrs Myers, move up north and retire there, its beautiful if you dont need to get anywhere in a hurry and have lots of time to fish, snowmobile and hunt - thats the only thing I miss about moving down to Southern Ontario!

Where have you thought to move to anyway?

Hellrazor, it's nothing that would happen anytime soon, but I would need a big city nearby. I live about 40 minutes from Chicago so I need the big city to be near. I just know Canada is beautiful. It'd be nice to even just have a time share or vacation home there.

You should make sure you're going to an area in PA that has a Walmart, Target, Party City, Spirit and Big Lots. Those I think are all great Halloween places.

Thats Great Mrs Myers! I want to got to the Orchard Park outlet mall. I cant remember exactly where it is off the top of my head. Had the plans made for last year and fell through so we are going to dig out those papers and do it his year. I will keep those stores in mind though ~ thanks again
